A high-molecular-weight plasma protein, produced by endothelial cells and megakaryocytes, that is part of the factor VIII/von Willebrand factor complex. The von Willebrand factor has receptors for collagen, platelets, and ristocetin activity as well as the immunologically distinct antigenic determinants. It functions in adhesion of platelets to collagen and hemostatic plug formation. The prolonged bleeding time in VON WILLEBRAND DISEASES is due to the deficiency of this factor.
Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value. The erythrocytes are hypochromic and microcytic and the iron binding capacity is increased.
A metallic element with atomic symbol Fe, atomic number 26, and atomic weight 55.85. It is an essential constituent of HEMOGLOBINS; CYTOCHROMES; and IRON-BINDING PROTEINS. It plays a role in cellular redox reactions and in the transport of OXYGEN.
Anemia characterized by a decrease in the ratio of the weight of hemoglobin to the volume of the erythrocyte, i.e., the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration is less than normal. The individual cells contain less hemoglobin than they could have under optimal conditions. Hypochromic anemia may be caused by iron deficiency from a low iron intake, diminished iron absorption, or excessive iron loss. It can also be caused by infections or other diseases, therapeutic drugs, lead poisoning, and other conditions. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Miale, Laboratory Medicine: Hematology, 6th ed, p393)
Iron or iron compounds used in foods or as food. Dietary iron is important in oxygen transport and the synthesis of the iron-porphyrin proteins hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, and cytochrome oxidase. Insufficient amounts of dietary iron can lead to iron-deficiency anemia.

The efficacy of octreotide therapy in chronic bleeding due to vascular abnormalities of the gastrointestinal tract. (1/43)

BACKGROUND: The treatment of angiodysplasia and watermelon stomach, vascular abnormalities implicated in gastrointestinal bleeding of obscure origin, is a major clinical problem. AIM: To determine the efficacy of octreotide in patients with long-standing gastrointestinal bleeding due to acquired angiodysplasia and watermelon stomach, resistant to previous treatments and not suitable for surgery because of old age and/or concomitant disorders. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We treated 17 patients (seven had isolated angiodysplasia, seven had multiple upper and lower gastrointestinal angiodysplasia, and three had watermelon stomach) with octreotide (0. 1 mg subcutaneous t.d.s. for 6 months). Six of the patients had liver cirrhosis, one had Glanzmann-type platelet derangement, two had cardiovascular diseases and one had chronic uraemia. RESULTS: Octreotide treatment stopped bleeding in 10 patients. A transient improvement was observed in four, who needed subsequent cyclical retreatment to correct low haemoglobin levels. No effect was observed in three, probably due to the severity of the concomitant disorders. CONCLUSIONS: Octreotide is a safe drug that may be useful to control the recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding due to acquired angiodysplasia and watermelon stomach, especially in patients who are not candidates for surgery due to old age and/or concomitant disorders.  (+info)

Diffuse angiodysplasia of the upper gastrointestinal tract in a patient with hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy. (2/43)

A 64-year-old woman with a known history of hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy presented with severe anemia of unknown origin. She had also suffered from repeated episodes of upper gastrointestinal bleeding for the previous 3 years. Despite bone marrow examination and panendoscopic and angiographic studies, the origin of anemia remained undefined until a small bleeding site was found during a duodenoscopic examination. The lesion proved to be angiodysplasia. This case report is interesting in that angiodysplasia elicited gastrointestinal bleeding and was the cause of anemia. In the international literature, there are very few reported cases of bleeding from gastrointestinal angiodysplasia in association with subvalvular aortic obstruction.  (+info)

Skeletal angiomatosis in association with gastro-intestinal angiodysplasia and paraproteinemia: a case report. (3/43)

Skeletal-extraskeletal angiomatosis is defined as a benign vascular proliferation involving the medullary cavity of bone and at least one other type of tissue. It has also been known as cystic angiomatosis in which multiple cystic lesions are scattered diffusely throughout the skeleton often with similar angiomatous changes in other tissues, usually the spleen. A case of skeletal angiomatosis in association with gastro-intestinal angiodysplasia and paraproteinemia is reported.  (+info)

Rate and predictive factors of rebleeding with obscure-overt gastrointestinal bleeding. (4/43)

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Little information is available on the rate and predictive factors of rebleeding of unknown cause, which is very important in deciding further investigations on obscure-overt gastrointestinal bleeding. The aim of this study was to evaluate the rebleeding rate and related factors in obscure-overt gastrointestinal bleeding patients who revealed normal gastroscopic and colonoscopic findings. METHODS: A total of 69 patients with negative first-line gastroscopy and colonoscopy were enrolled in this study as obscure-overt gastrointestinal bleeding cases. The relationships between rebleeding and clinical characteristics were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: The causes of obscure-overt gastrointestinal bleeding were confirmed in 30 cases among the 69 cases. Small bowel tumors (14 cases) were the most common cause, followed by vascular lesions (6 cases). The mean follow-up period was 28 months and rebleeding was noticed in 19 patients (27.5%). Among these rebleeding patients, 14 cases (73.7%) occurred within 6 months. The past experience of previous bleeding was significantly related with rebleeding (p=0.0009). CONCLUSIONS: Close observation and detailed investigations are needed for obscure-overt gastrointestinal bleeding patients with bleeding history, especially during 6 months follow-up.  (+info)

Persistent anemia in otherwise asymptomatic severe aortic stenosis: a possible indication for valve replacement? (5/43)

BACKGROUND: The indication for aortic valve replacement in patients with significant aortic stenosis is symptomatology. Aortic stenosis may be associated with bleeding from colonic angiodysplasia, resulting in anemia. Persistent anemia in such patients, despite lack of an identifiable source of bleeding, is not considered an indication for valve replacement. OBJECTIVES: To report our experience with two elderly female patients who suffered from severe asymptomatic aortic stenosis, low levels of large von Willebrand factor multimer (10% and 5% respectively) and persistent anemia requiring multiple blood transfusions. METHODS: Both patients underwent an intensive work-up, but a source of bleeding could not be identified. Aortic valve replacement was performed in both patients. RESULTS: Aortic valve replacement abolished the need for further blood transfusions during a follow-up period of 20 months with normalization of the vWF multimer level (20% and 30% respectively). CONCLUSION: We suggest that aortic valve replacement be considered in selected patients with severe, otherwise asymptomatic aortic stenosis, who suffer from persistent anemia requiring multiple blood transfusions, lack an identifiable source of bleeding and have low levels of large vWF multimers.  (+info)

Myelofibrosis and angiodysplasia of the colon: another manifestation of portal hypertension and massive splenomegaly? (6/43)

Bleeding owing to portal hypertensive colopathy, a form of large bowel angiodysplasia, as a cause of increased blood transfusion requirement is described in a 74 year old man with idiopathic myelofibrosis. The proposed mechanism and the potential therapeutic options for this rare complication of myelofibrosis are discussed.  (+info)

Infective endocarditis from Enterococcus faecalis complicating colonoscopy in Heyde's syndrome. (7/43)

A case of infective endocarditis from Enterococcus faecalis after colonoscopy in a patient with aortic stenoinsufficiency and bleeding intestinal angiodysplasia (Heyde's syndrome) is reported.A 77 year old man with aortic stenoinsufficiency presented with enterorrhagia and underwent a colonoscopy, which showed normal findings. Fifteen days later he developed a moderate degree of fever. Blood cultures were positive for E faecalis. An echocardiogram showed aortic valve vegetations, and infective endocarditis was diagnosed and successfully treated by antibiotics. Some months later, intestinal bleeding recurred and intestinal resection was performed. Histopathology showed angiodysplasia. In patients with Heyde's syndrome antibiotic prophylaxis should be considered before colonoscopy.  (+info)

Successful colectomy for the treatment of repetitive bleeding from colonic angiodysplasia in a patient with Heyde syndrome. (8/43)

A 64-year-old man with repetitive gastrointestinal bleeding was admitted to our hospital. Colonic artery angiography revealed angiodysplasia as the bleeding site, and echocardiography showed aortic valve stenosis. A decrease in the high molecular weight von Willebrand factor multimers, which are known to play an important role in hemostasis, was observed, and Heyde syndrome was diagnosed. We selected colectomy instead of aortic valve replacement because the patient had undergone two open heart surgeries. Following colectomy, the patient showed a good clinical course without recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding. Colectomy might serve as a therapeutic option for Heyde syndrome after the precise site of angiodysplasia is detected by angiography.  (+info)

Rationale:. Gastrointestinal angiodysplasias are an important cause of difficult to manage bleeding, especially in older patients. Angiodysplasias are technical challenging to manage endoscopic. Some patients are blood transfusion or iron infusion dependent due to rebleedings despite endoscopic intervention. In clinical practice we face difficulties in these patients as there is no known effective alternative treatment. In small cohort studies octreotide appears to decrease the bleeding episodes in those patients, but the evidence is still to weak to integrate this treatment modality in daily practice.. Objective:. To assess the efficacy of octreotide in decreasing the need for blood transfusions or iron infusion in patients with refractory anaemia due to gastrointestinal bleedings of angiodysplasias despite endoscopic intervention.. Study design:. Multicenter, randomized, open-label intervention study.. Study population:. 62 patients, older than 45 years, with refractory anaemia due to bleeding ...
Introduction The cause of sporadic angiodysplasia is unknown and the natural history poorly understood. Many lesions are thought to arise from a degenerative process associated with ageing. Most cases of hereditary haemorrhagic telangiectasia appear to result from mutations in two genes, ENG and ACVRL1. These mutations alter the function of 2 key endothelial receptor proteins, endoglin and ALK-1 (part of the transforming growth factor β super-family), which ordinarily play a key role in maintaining vascular integrity. It has been observed that endoglin is over expressed in smooth muscle cells in atherosclerotic plaques, suggesting a role for this protein in plaque progression, atherosclerosis and associated cardiovascular disease. ...
We present the case of a 70 year old patient, with a past history of hypertension, myocardial infarction, who came to our attention for a chronic obstructive arteriopathy of the lower extremities and claudicatio at 100 m. The patient also displayed an hypochromic anemia (Hb=7g/dL); no history of evident bleeding could be demonstrated. Ultrasonography showed the left common iliac artery obstruction and patent femoral, popliteal and tibial arteries.. The patient underwent colonoscopy that revealed a reddish area in the caecum that could be referred to angiodysplasia, and two small peduncolated polyps (0.5 and 0.8 mm) that were resected. Histology gave evidence of a low-grade tubular adenoma. Abdominal and lower limbs arteriography confirmed the ultrasonographic suspicion and we therefore proceeded with primary stenting of the iliac obstruction. At the same time, selective arteriography of the superior mesenteric artery was carried out, showing an angiographic appearance compatible with ...

Heyde syndrome manifests as aortic stenosis associated with gastrointestinal bleeding. We describe the case of a 64-year-old man who came to the emergency room due to acute heart failure and intermittent gastrointestinal bleeding. Treatment involves initial correction of anemia and heart failure followed by aortic valve replacement. The prosthesis used depends on the characteristics of each patient and valve replacement allows the resolution of bleeding in most cases. Gastrointestinal bleeding in patients with aortic stenosis is associated with severity of the valve obstruction. A mechanical prosthesis was used with no recurrent bleeding even with the need for lifelong anticoagulation therapy.. ...

A 77 year old man was admitted to our department because of enterorrhagia and progressive anaemia. On physical examination he was pale, dyspnoeic, and an aortic systodiastolic murmur (Levine grade 3) was heard. Laboratory examination showed microcytic hypochromic anaemia (haemoglobin 62 g/l). An echocardiogram showed severe left ventricular hypertrophy and a calcific aortic valve with moderate-severe stenoinsufficiency. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, colonoscopy, computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis, and arteriography of gastrointestinal vessels did not disclose the origin of the bleeding. No antibiotic prophylaxis was performed before procedures. Fifteen days after colonoscopy, the patient became febrile (body temperature up to 40.1°C). A repeat echocardiogram showed two small and mobile vegetations on the right and non-coronary aortic cusps, and transoesophageal echocardiogram confirmed this finding. Three blood specimens for culture were drawn and within seven days all cultures ...

Hereditary Haemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT) or Rendu-Osler-Weber syndrome is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by local angiodysplasia affecting different organism districts. From a clinical viewpoint, HHT patients suffer from epistaxis, mucocutaneous telangiectases and arteriovenous malformations in various organs. Mutations in two known genes (ENG and ALK1) account for the majority of HHT patients. Additional loci are predicted, but the underlying genes are still to be identified. Moreover, SMAD4 mutations have been reported to cause JP-HHT combined syndrome. Both endoglin and ALK-1 bind to various growth factors in the context of the Transforming Growth Factors (TGF)- superfamily and their expression is restricted to vascular endothelial cells and very few other cell types, such as activated monocytes. Endoglin and ALK1 mutations are thought to affect endothelial cell metabolism, angiogenesis and vascular remodelling, even if the precise mechanism leading to the HHT lesions is ...
SUMMARY Iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia are common nutritional and hematologic disorders. In infants and young children, iron deficiency is most commonly caused by insufficient dietary iron. Rarely, it can result from mutations in TMPRSS6, a gene encoding a membrane protease that serves normally as a transcriptional suppressor of the primary negative regulator of iron absorption, hepcidin. In young women, iron deficiency is most often the result of blood loss in menstruation or as a result of blood loss during pregnancy, childbirth, and lactation. In older adults, bleeding is often the cause of iron deficiency, and may originate from the gastrointestinal tract, as from hemorrhoids, peptic ulcer, hiatus hernia, colon cancer, or angiodysplasia; from the genitourinary tract; from uterine leiomyomas or carcinoma, or a renal tumor; or from the pulmonary tree, through chronic hemoptysis caused by infection or malignancy, or as a result of idiopathic pulmonary hemosiderosis. Iron deficiency ...
At survey on character of varicose dilatation of veins can be judged localization insufficient communicative veins, by touching it is possible to estimate a condition of hypodermic veins, to define a blood-groove on a arteriovenous fistula and by auscultation to hear it. Similar symptoms meet at early stages of obliterating diseases of arteries, flat-footedness, the phenomena of a lumbar osteochondrosis. Diagnostics of varicose illness at presence of complaints and absence of attributes is carried out by means of retrograde phlebography where the initial degree of insufficiency of the spinal valve of the big hypodermic vein comes to light, valves of deep veins of a hip and a shin. Dilatations of superficial veins meet at venous dysplasia and postthrombotic syndrome. Various kinds of angiodysplasia are distinguished on terms of their occurrence (usually at early childrens age). Presence of artery-venous shunts leads to the accelerated growth of the limb. The local skin temperature on a foot ...

The major efficacy outcome measure was progression-free survival determined by a blinded independent radiology committee using Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST), version 1.1. The median progression-free survival was not reached for Lu-177 dotatate and was 8.5 months in the high-dose long-acting octreotide arm (hazard ratio = 0.21, 95% confidence interval = 0.13-0.32, P , .0001).. The efficacy of Lu-177 dotatate was also assessed in a subset (n = 360) of 1,214 patients enrolled in the Erasmus Medical Center study, with GEP-NET tumors assessed according to RECIST criteria. Lu-177 dotatate was initially provided through expanded access under a general peptide receptor radionuclide therapy protocol at a single site in the Netherlands. The drug was administered at a dose of 7.4 GBq [200 mCi]) every 6 to 13 weeks for up to 4 doses. The overall response rate was 16% (n = 58), including 3 complete responses.. Safety and Toxicity.

Purpose : To examine the utility and limitations of computed tomography enteroclysis (CTE) in examining clinically suspected small intestinal hemorrhage.Subjects and Methods : Subjects comprised 41 patients (16 men, 25 women) with suspected gastrointestinal bleeding based on fecal occult blood or tarry stool between April 2008 and August 2010. CTE was performed after the cause of bleeding could not be clearly identified on upper or lower gastrointestinal endoscopy. Capsule endoscopy was also performed in 25 patients and double balloon endoscopy in 13 patients. Results : CTE findings were obtained for 17 of 41 patients (41%), suggesting vascular malformation in 9 patients (22%), inflammatory bowel disease in 7 (17%), and small intestinal tumor in 1 (2%). Capsule endoscopy or double balloon endoscopy confirmed these suspicions in all except 1 patient with angiodysplasia confirmed angiographically and 1 patient with a false-positive finding of tumor. In 20 of the 24 patients showing no ...
The prevalence of co-morbid gastrointestinal symptoms is high in dialysis patients, while abdominal pain, constipation, diarrhea, anorexia and abdominal bloating are the second-most common group of symptoms following dyspeptic symptoms. Underlying these symptoms is a wide spectrum of lower gastrointestinal disorders such as diverticular disease, angiodysplasia, mesenteric ischemia, ischemic colitis, colonic perforation, fecal impaction and stercoral ulcer, dialysis-related amyloidosis, encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis, and idiopathic dialysis ascites. Also, infarcts due to non-occlusive intestinal ischemia are less common but severe complications. Incidence of gastrointestinal disorders is considered to increase with the duration of renal failure, independent of dialysis modality. While uremia and dialysis have been linked to an increased risk of gastrointestinal tract lesions, pathogenesis of gastrointestinal dysfunction in end-stage renal disease is considered multifactorial and has not yet ...
Management of Heyde syndrome often requires a multidisciplinary approach, and treatment options include medical therapy, endoscopic interventions, colon surgery and aortic valve replacement.3 Treatment modalities used in von Willebrand disease (e.g., desmopressin, octreotide or supplementation of factor VIII or von Willebrand factor) are usually insufficient or ineffective for acquired type IIA von Willebrand syndrome.2-4 Administration of von Willebrand factor-factor VIII concentrate immediately before surgery should be considered for patients who have transient improvement in von Willebrand factor activity with a test dose (see references listed in Appendix 1). Some experts suggest the use of estrogen-progesterone preparations; however, the mechanism of action of such treatment is still unknown.3,4 Thalidomide has been shown to reduce the incidence of severe gastrointestinal bleeding in several studies.3 Repeated blood transfusions may offer some, though transient, symptomatic relief..

Prostaglandinanaloger hæmmer syresekretionen og stimulerer desuden mucus- og hydrogencarbonat-sekretionen. Da hæmning af den prostaglandinafhængige mucosaprotektion er af patogenetisk betydning for NSAID-inducerede ventrikelulcera, synes substitution med prostaglandinanaloger nærliggende som profylakse, og flere prostaglandinanaloger er da også vist at forebygge udvikling af endoskopisk påviselige erosioner og ulcera i ventrikelmucosa hos patienter i NSAID-behandling. Den kliniske anvendelighed påvirkes dog af bivirkningsprofilen (diarré). Rutinemæssig kombination af NSAID og prostaglandinanalog eller syrepumpehæmmer som profylakse mod ventrikelulcera er ikke indiceret, men bør overvejes ved særlige risikofaktorer, fx ældre og patienter med tidligere ulcussygdom eller gastro-intestinal blødning. Dokumentationen er dog bedst for syrepumpehæmmer som profylakse. ...

... is a consequence of lactase deficiency, which may be genetic (primary hypolactasia and primary congenital alactasia) or environmentally induced (secondary or acquired hypoalactasia). In either case, symptoms are caused by insufficient levels of lactase in the lining of the duodenum. Lactose, a disaccharide molecule found in milk and dairy products, cannot be directly absorbed through the wall of the small intestine into the bloodstream, so, in the absence of lactase, passes intact into the colon[citation needed]. Bacteria in the colon can metabolise lactose, and the resulting fermentation produces copious amounts of gas (a mixture of hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and methane) that causes the various abdominal symptoms. The unabsorbed sugars and fermentation products also raise the osmotic pressure of the colon, causing an increased flow of water into the bowels (diarrhea).[18][9] The LCT gene provides the instructions for making lactase. The specific DNA sequence in the MCM6 gene ...
Prevention includes the use of breast milk and probiotics.[2] A 2012 policy by the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended feeding preterm infants human milk, finding "significant short- and long-term beneficial effects," including reducing the rate of NEC by a factor of two or more.[10] Small amounts of oral feeds of human milk starting as soon as possible, while the infant is being primarily fed intravenously, primes the immature gut to mature and become ready to receive greater intake by mouth.[11] Human milk from a milk bank or donor can be used if mother's milk is unavailable. The gut mucosal cells do not get enough nourishment from arterial blood supply to stay healthy, especially in very premature infants, where the blood supply is limited due to immature development of the capillaries, so nutrients from the lumen of the gut are needed. A Cochrane review in 2014 found that supplementation of probiotics enterally "prevents severe NEC as well as all-cause mortality in preterm ...
Partially digested food starts to arrive in the small intestine as semi-liquid chyme, one hour after it is eaten.[citation needed] The stomach is half empty after an average of 1.2 hours.[31] After four or five hours the stomach has emptied.[32] In the small intestine, the pH becomes crucial; it needs to be finely balanced in order to activate digestive enzymes. The chyme is very acidic, with a low pH, having been released from the stomach and needs to be made much more alkaline. This is achieved in the duodenum by the addition of bile from the gall bladder combined with the bicarbonate secretions from the pancreatic duct and also from secretions of bicarbonate-rich mucus from duodenal glands known as Brunner's glands. The chyme arrives in the intestines having been released from the stomach through the opening of the pyloric sphincter. The resulting alkaline fluid mix neutralises the gastric acid which would damage the lining of the intestine. The mucus component lubricates the walls of the ...
A Spigelian hernia (or lateral ventral hernia) is a hernia through the Spigelian fascia, which is the aponeurotic layer between the rectus abdominis muscle medially, and the semilunar line laterally. These are generally interparietal hernias, meaning that they do not lie below the subcutaneous fat but penetrate between the muscles of the abdominal wall; therefore, there is often no notable swelling. Spigelian hernias are usually small and therefore risk of strangulation is high. Most occur on the right side. (4th-7th decade of life.) Compared to other types of hernias they are rare.[1] ...
Dysentery is initially managed by maintaining fluid intake using oral rehydration therapy. If this treatment cannot be adequately maintained due to vomiting or the profuseness of diarrhea, hospital admission may be required for intravenous fluid replacement. Ideally, no antimicrobial therapy should be administered until microbiological microscopy and culture studies have established the specific infection involved. When laboratory services are not available, it may be necessary to administer a combination of drugs, including an amoebicidal drug to kill the parasite and an antibiotic to treat any associated bacterial infection. Anyone with bloody diarrhea needs immediate medical help. Treatment often starts with an oral rehydrating solution-water mixed with salt and carbohydrates-to prevent dehydration. (Emergency relief services often distribute inexpensive packets of sugars and mineral salts that can be mixed with clean water and used to restore lifesaving fluids in dehydrated children gravely ...
Ipecac or ipecacuanha consists of the dried rhizome and roots of Cephaelis ipecacuanha. The medical virtues of ipecac are almost entirely due to the action of its alkaloids-emetine and cephaline. Till today, emetine remains one of the best drugs for treating amoebic liver abscess. It has a direct action on the trophozoites. Its greater concentration and duration of action in the liver as compared to that in the intestinal wall explains its high efficacy in amoebic liver abscess and also its low parasitic cure rate for intestinal amoebiasis. The drug is detoxicated and eliminated slowly. It may, therefore, produce cumulative effects. In man, emetine poisoning is characterized by muscular tremors, weakness and pain in the extremities which tend to persist until drug administration is stopped. Gastro-intestinal symptoms include nausea, vomiting and bloody diarrhoea. The latter may be mistaken for a recurrence of amoebic dysentery. Many clinicians fear the occurrence of cardiac toxicity due to this ...
In the great majority of cases, sufferers experience no life-altering discomfort, and no treatment is required. If there is pain or discomfort, 3 or 4 sips of room temperature water will usually relieve the pain. Symptomatic patients should elevate the head of their beds and avoid lying down directly after meals[citation needed]. If the condition has been brought on by stress, stress reduction techniques may be prescribed, or if overweight, weight loss may be indicated. Antisecretory drugs like proton pump inhibitors and H2 receptor blockers can be used to reduce acid secretion. Medications that reduce the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) pressure should be avoided. However, in some unusual instances, as when the hiatal hernia is unusually large, or is of the paraesophageal type, it may cause esophageal stricture or severe discomfort. About 5% of hiatal hernias are paraesophageal. If symptoms from such a hernia are severe for example if chronic acid reflux threatens to severely injure the ...
Adhesions form as a natural part of the body's healing process after surgery in a similar way that a scar forms. The term "adhesion" is applied when the scar extends from within one tissue across to another, usually across a virtual space such as the peritoneal cavity. Adhesion formation post-surgery typically occurs when two injured surfaces are close to one another. This often causes inflammation and causes fibrin deposits onto the damaged tissues.[2] The fibrin then connects the two adjacent structures where damage of the tissues occurred. The fibrin acts like a glue to seal the injury and builds the fledgling adhesion, said at this point to be "fibrinous." In body cavities such as the peritoneal, pericardial, and synovial cavities, a family of fibrinolytic enzymes may act to limit the extent of the initial fibrinous adhesion, and may even dissolve it. In many cases, the production or activity of these enzymes are compromised because of injury, however, and the fibrinous adhesion persists. If ...
... (TD) is a stomach and intestinal infection. TD is defined as the passage of unformed stool (one or more by some definitions, three or more by others) while traveling.[2][3] It may be accompanied by abdominal cramps, nausea, fever, and bloating.[3] Occasionally bloody diarrhea may occur.[5] Most travelers recover within four days with little or no treatment.[3] About 10% of people may have symptoms for a week.[3] Bacteria are responsible for more than half of cases.[3] The bacteria enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) are typically the most common except in Southeast Asia, where Campylobacter is more prominent.[2][3] About 10% to 20% of cases are due to norovirus.[3] Protozoa such as Giardia may cause longer term disease.[3] The risk is greatest in the first two weeks of travel and among young adults.[2] People affected are more often from the developed world.[2] Recommendations for prevention include eating only properly cleaned and cooked food, drinking bottled water, and ...
